5:33 am
patdown. some travelers say that this really isn't that intrusive. they want to know what is going on. others say they are not happy with this at all. the transportation security administration chief john pistole says he knows some passengers are uncomfortable with this but they have no plans to change the policy. some in congress say they say this is an inefficient way to scan people. they want more scanning of the documents people need to get on plans. they want them to look at other body scanning equipment that wouldn't reveal so much. >> a box will instead of all this personal intrusion and we can do a better job than this and protect people without destroying the values that we are trying to protect. >> i think everyone including our security experts are looking for ways to diminish the impact on the traveling public.

5:49 am

5:54 am
overtime. >> here it is if you want it, take it, and the redskins took it. redemption is the right word today for the redskins. i don't think i've ever seen a game where you lose seven starters, you came into the game mine us three hour starters. that is 10 guys out of 22. it is pretty amazing. you give up a punt return for a touchdown. you are on the road. you miss two field goals and you find a way to win the game. simply amazing. nothing but great things to say about the redskins today. oh, no, don't make it be a long one here and he just drilled it. graham is a good guy. i don't think he has felt that kind of pressure since he did dave stress us dave. that is real pressure there. it is a great team win.
5:55 am
then you sioux saw vince young walking -- then you saw vince young walking off the field. the skins had every reason to quit. the titans didn't. you thought this team would roll over and die after the monday night massacre. that is why we have donovan mcnabb in a leadership position. that is why mike shanahan showed his worth. the team did not quit monday night. i didn't think they would. not sure how talented they are but they fought, steve. other teams around the league don't do that all the time. >> they are back even at 5-5. you got minnesota coming in next week. >> not playing well. can i give out some other kudos here. how about clinton portis here and don't look at the numbers. he gutted out a game. >> you say he was cleared to go medically. mike shanahan will tell you he was fine. he wasn't. there is no way clinton portis would have even attempted to be
5:56 am
in this game a year ago. no way. but he wanted to be a part of this team. he wanted to prove that i'm going to go out there and show that really for him i don't think the skins are going to go to the playoffs. that wasn't the point. the point was i'm going to be there for high teammates. he gutted up, manned up and he played. i am so impressed for fact that he went out there and gave it everything he had. you saw him. recognizing blitz pickups so he could get out there on a swing pass. those are things that veterans do and he showed some leadership yesterday. >> he played hard and you look at that in contrast to vince young and chucks his shoulder pads into the crowd. how is that the way to respond. >> that is not the way you show leadership. cp goes down. they needed portis at least to
5:57 am
